Brad Garrett joins Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here

Showtime has announced that comedian Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) will guest star in the second season of their drama series I’m Dying Up Here. The Emmy-award winner will play comedy legend Roy Martin, who arrives on the scene at Goldie’s and drops bombs and wisdom on the club’s comics. Goldie (Melissa Leo) lures him into a business partnership as she schemes to expand her empire.

Garrett can next be heard as the voice of Eeyore in Disney’s upcoming live-action feature Christopher Robin and will co-star with Julianne Moore and John Turturro in Sebastian Lelio’s Gloria.

I’m Dying Up Here delves into the inspired, damaged and complicated psyches of a fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians mentored by Goldie, a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. The series takes viewers behind the curtain of the comedy scene that birthed the careers of legends such as Richard Pryor, Robin Williams and David Letterman, showing there’s truly no such thing as an easy laugh. The ensemble cast includes Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, Ari Graynor, Clark Duke, Michael Angarano, RJ Cyler, Andrew Santino, Erik Griffin, Al Madrigal and Jake Lacy.

Produced by Showtime, I’m Dying Up Here is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder. The 10-episode second season goes into production this month in Los Angeles and is set to premiere on Sunday, May 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The series is created and executive produced by Dave Flebotte and executive produced by Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar.
